What is the cheapest way I could send stuff via post as I'm thinking of selling a few things on here to be able to affords tickets for a paramore concert.

O im selling ps3 games, ps2 games, dvds, maybe a few rock band peripherals

Thanks guys how do we rep here ?

Re-use any jiffy bags you've kept from online orders.

Try selling 2 games/dvds to one buyer to save 50p or so in P&P.

so your saying every games roughly should work out at 80 pence each to send 2nd class and how do you get someone to make payments into your paypal account

yeah around 80p once youve agreed on a sale you just send them a private message with the email address thats linked to your paypal account

awesome thanks guy hopefully this works out

Or.. if you want to save a few more pence...

For DVD's I have cut up old cardboard boxes and just put a sheet of cardboard on either side of the DVD and wrapped up in brown tape..

Or... just put in a plastic bag and wrap up with brown tape, If the DVD etc.. is in a hard plastic case it will be fine..

(For example, a lot of Love Film dvds are just in plastic sleeve's and there always ok.)

It would probably go as a large letter so don't pad it out too and it will fit through the post office gauge when you get it weighed. For an extra 75p I'd send it Recorded Delivery - just so you're covered in case it doesn't arrive (it happens sometimes - then you'd be out of pocket refunding the buyer as you have no proof it was ever delivered and you've lost the game as well). Sorry to sound like doom and gloom but its happened to me before on ebay and I send everything RD now. Sending a game would be around either £1.36 1st class RD or £1.22 RD (RD fee included). Hope this helps a bit.

The prices should be something like:

2nd Class - 76p
1st Class - 90p

I always send 1st Class as i like to send things as fast as possible, and the price difference isn't too much.
